Old_Zircon When it comes to movies it's kind of the same thing. All the movies that I saw as a kid that messed with my head ended up being my favorite kind of stuff a few years later.
bac Almost the same. Although I liked them a lot when I watched them the first time. The Alien Trilogy. Both Predator movies. Nothing like seeing Texas Chainsaw Massacre when you're 9. God Bless video rental store clerks who didn't give a shit.
Old_Zircon Yeah, I rented so much stuff like that by the time was 15 or 16 they asked me if I wanted a job. I was literally recruited by the video store.
baleen The first compressed, digitized song I ever heard was the Gwar Theme, summer of 1990.
infinite zest I was about 12 when I discovered Gwar: an op on the BBS I used was named Oderus Urangus. He told me about some site called portal of evil.
EvilHomer Beavis & Butthead for me. I only saw their music video once, but that was enough.
Old_Zircon I think I found out about them in maybe 7th grade from a guy who worked for my mother. Same guy who introduced me to The Butthole Surfers and Napalm Death and The Melvins.
Old_Zircon The Gor Gor video is what sold me on getting a CD though. Definitely one of the first three or four CDs I owned.
bac I was 11 it was Empire Records. I watched that movie half a dozen times at that age. and watched it again about 6 years later, and realized just how much it influenced my mannerisms...motherfucker now I want to watch it again.
Shoebox Joe I discovered GWAR really late in life. 20
I discovered a lot of cool stuff thanks to people talking about 80's/90's punk on the internet.
It's pretty much my only social exposure. :(
Nominal Not up to speed on my GWAR recognition. I clicked on this video thinking he was letting them watch that 70s Alice in Wonderland XXX film.
